VIRTUAL BSD AWARDS – RULES AND REGULATIONS

School Rules: New for the 2021 Virtual Broadway San Diego Awards (BSDA)  – May 20, 2021!

Eligible high schools must be public or private schools within San Diego County. Schools will not be required to produce a full musical this year. Schools may nominate up to four (4) students per school for Best Actor or Best Actress for the 2021 virtual program.

Each student nominated must submit two (2) songs from qualifying ROLE(s) from The Jimmy Awards® list here (subject to change).

The nominee’s first song/video audition should showcase the strongest aspects of your talents and will be what you’re officially judged on. The second song is for additional consideration and may be used for final judging. Both songs should have a track of piano (a helpful website with free piano accompaniment tracks can be found here).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • The solo songs must be no more than two (2) minutes and thirty (30) seconds in length.
  • Video files should be no more than 300MB.

Teachers/Educators must communicate to the students they are being nominated for our program. If chosen as a nominee to participate in the 2021 virtual BSDA ceremony, students must have access to the internet, a web cam and a Zoom account.

Please email BSDAwards@BroadwaySD.com should schools have any questions regarding these requirements.

All video submissions will be reviewed and adjudicated by a panel of qualified judges selected by Broadway San Diego. No adjudicators will be sent to schools.
